### Re: Find the slope of each line

x=12
dx/dy=o
is a line parallel to the y axis. Note that for all line parallel to the x and y axis their gradients are zero.If given y=8
dy/dx=o

### Re: Find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph

note the function is a straight line hence for all functions the x intercept is found when y is 0 so setting (x-3)/5 =0 will give x=3 and the y intercept will be found when x=0 thus y=(0-3)/5 .Gives y=-3/5.

### rate of change of volume if r increases at 2cm/m

A solid consist of a hemisphere of radius r joined joined to a cone of constant height 60cm.The base of the cone is a plane face of a hemisphere.If r increases at a rate of 2cm/m.Calculate the rate of increase of the volume of the solid if r=60.leave answer in terms of pi. [volume of sphere=(4pir^3/...

### numerical applications

The period T, of a simple pendulum is dwefined by the function T=4pi rut(l/g) where g is the constant gravitational acceleration and l the length of the pendulum.find the %change in the period caused by lengthening the pendulum by 2%.please help i diffrentiated to get dt/dl=pi/rut lg .I'm stuck there.

### Re: Help with rearranging formula x(squared) - y + 2ab = 4 f

-y=-x^2-2ab+4 then multiply or divide by -1 to get y=x^2+2ab-4

### Re: Find an equation of a Tangent Line of sin^2(x)?

impute (1/2) for x in f'(x) to obtain the grad of the line .then again for x in y=f(x) to obtain the y value thus the point becomes p(1/2;sin^2 1/2)......and grad 2sin(1/2)cos(1/2)........!
